If you are a business owner within the BID area, you will be charged an additional levy. The levy is not a part of the business rate but is based on it and is collected by the council on behalf of the partnership.
The levy is charged at one per cent of business rateable values of £5,000 or more, with the following exceptions -
- registered charities that have a reduced business rate are charged at 0.2 per cent
- some properties located in a shopping centre will pay a reduced amount with the agreement of the centre management who will pay the difference. These are individual arrangements between the tenants and landlords
How to pay your BID levy
We collect the BID levy on behalf of the Hull BID. You can pay online, by BACS, by telephone, by post, or in person.
If you have a query regarding payments or recovery of the levy please contact us at Hull City Council.
What the BID levy goes to
The fund is used to make improvements to the BID area over and above the statutory services provided by the council and police. This includes improving safety and security, tidying up vacant properties and promoting events and attractions to encourage visitors into the city centre.
